Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Early Years Foundation Stage

A very warm welcome to Oasis Academy Limeside to all our new Reception and Nursery children.

Normally we would be planning visits to school for children and their parents but unfortunately this is not possible at the moment.

Instead we have decided to make some short videos to introduce the staff and some of the things your children can look forward to doing.

Keep watching this space for updates and please get in touch with us at any time if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage supports children aged 2-4, preparing them for a lifetime of learning and getting them ready for their transition into Primary education. 

2 Year Old Unit

We provide care and education for 20 children during either a morning or afternoon session, following their second birthday. 

Our philosophy is to provide a stimulating, caring environment, where each child can develop the confidence, independence and new skills they need. Working in partnership with their families, we aim to provide a range of activities to enhance each child’s growth, learning and development.

3-4 Year Old Nursery

We have places available in our warm, welcoming and exciting Nursery Class. We welcome all children the term after their 3rd birthday (i.e. September, January and after Easter).

We provide an excellent Early Years education with highly qualified teachers (NNEB, HNC) and very experienced staff.

We have morning and afternoon places available (8.50 to 11.50am and 12.10 to 3.10pm) 

We have a before & after school club for those parents who require extra care for their child (8.00am start and a 5:30pm finish).

We plan activities to help your child’s learning journey through the Early Years Foundation Stage, towards all their early learning goals. We have a bright and stimulating learning environment, where your child can learn thorough their play, both indoors and outdoors.

We focus on the 3 prime areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, which support your child’s Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development to give your child the best start in their education.

In school we also provide support for children and families with interventions such as speech and language and baby moves.

If you are interested please phone the academy on 0161 688 7535 or email for more information or to make an informal visit.
